Reviewed 21 March 2014

Alba, meaning the sunrise, is a perfect name for this boutique hotel in downtown Tirana. In a small street, just off vibrant Toptani ‎place, you would not expect what you get: what an island of warmth and friendly atmosphere!

The hotel is brand new, well designed and, different from what you frequently get in this part of the world, the owner also insisted on getting the details nice and well done. Service is very customer oriented and speaks perfect English: they are dedicated to look after your needs. The place is very tidy and well kept. Breakfast at the roof top terrace overseeing the town and offering nearby mountain view is an absolute must. For business and leisure alike: I'd recommend Vila Alba to any traveller going to Tirana. Excellent value for money!

Except for being located in the very city centre of Tirana, the Hotel Vila Alba offers comfortable and clean rooms and meeting/conference rooms. The view from the top terrace is directly at the Dajti mountain which jealously surrounds Tirana. As for the hotel staff, they are all more than amiable and hospitable and always at your service! I really loved being there and enjoyed every minute of my presence in the hotel!

one of the topics when being in Tirana is this Hotel - in the center of Tirana a nice, friendly Oasis where you are able to keep all the Stress of the day outside and the sunny Terace on top of the building allows a great start of the day, as well as comfortable meetings with your biz-partners & friends.

Finding a nice spot to stay for my film crew is not always easy. But when it comes to comfort and value, this place is shurely a very good choice. The Vila Alba is a very modern hotel, located right in the center of TIrana. The terrace on the roof is always a fine starting point for the day, along with a very good breakfast. And if you´re the sweet type check out the Sacher cake in the café by the lobby.
It was my first trip to Tirana and frankly I did not anticipate such a nice hotel! It has not that many rooms, but this is what it makes a quite and welcoming place.

If you go to Tirana for business or pleasure don't look anywhere else, go straight to Vila Alba,
Vila Alba
Rr. Xhorxhi Martini, Nr. 10
Tirana
Albania,
you are going to be treated like family.
We stayed there for a few days during one International conference and the place was decorated with elegance, you could feel the welcome spirit everywhere. The rooms were clean and very comfortable.
This is a boutique hotel where the staff is always willing to assist you with all your needs and they make you feel like you are a VIP but also like family member.
The Manager, Lady Jonida who is also co owner, takes the time to talk to all the guests and makes sure that you have everything you need or want. The manager, Jonida, is there for you and she will go the extra mile to assure you are comfortable, have a great experience with their Italian food and their sweets , and if you take the time to visit with her she will make you feel at home with her spiritual power you can talk about Yoga, India and a lot of Vienna spirit too .
The guards are very respectful, corteous and they will show you why Albania is the best place to travel if you want to feel at home away from home.
I will recommend this small hotel to anyone who enjoys being treated like "the most important person in the room"
This is our second stay at this hotel in less than a year and we will go back again and again!
Thank you for a wonderful hospitality !
